Could have been either a mammoth or even a mastodon (much larger beast), this is according to The Source - transportation blog concerning the Los Angeles Metor.

Though the ice-age fossils (exact age not yet determined) are definitely great discoveries more rare to find under a subway than the typical rodent "remains" or bits of chicken wings and tossed out coffee cups.
